Unless you paid a high price for your room don't expect to be well treated at this hotel. In fact, their policy consist of giving good rooms for travelers who paid a high price, but if you got your room at a discounted price they will try their best to make you pay more or give you a less value...

Grand Durmaz is much more than an ordinary hotel. Over the last three years, I have visited Istanbul for at least 10 times and stayed here every time. The hotel is situated at an ideal location, just one minute walk from your room to bus or metro station. Rooms are clean and nicely furnished. These facilities may be available in... More

Location is good, near the tram station, walking distance to the Grand Bazaar. The room is small but has all the essentials. View of mosque outside the window is great.Though near the street, the windows are sound-proofing.

Location was perfect - close to the underground station connecting the old town and the airport, but also close to the historic city center. Rooms very clean, floor in corridors not level - you can trip easily. Besides, breakfast could be better for that price.
